The Franklin County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is a physical (e.g., a conference room) or virtual (e.g., telephone conference call) location designed to support Franklin County’s emergency response, business continuity and crisis communications activities. Staff & organizational representatives coordinate together at the EOC to manage preparations for an impending event or manage the response to an ongoing incident. By gathering the decision makers together and supplying them with the most current information, better decisions can be made.
